### Useful Fraction Definitions

What is a fraction?

A fraction is a number which contains parts of a whole.

Fractions can be smaller than or larger than one (one whole).

A fraction is a number with the form: ${n \over d}$

where n and d are two numbers.

The number n above the line is called the numerator.

The number d below the line is called the denominator.

If the numerator is smaller than the denominator (if n < d), then the fraction is called a proper fraction, and its value is less than 1.

If the numerator is greater than the denominator (if n > d), then the fraction is called an improper fraction, and its value is greater than 1.

If the numerator is equal to the denominator, then the fraction's value is equal to 1.

A mixed number (or mixed fraction) is a number that has a whole number part to it, and a fraction part to it.

### Types of Fractions Examples

${3 \over 7}, {2 \over 10} \; and \; {17 \over 26}$ are all proper fractions.
